AND YET MY MASK IS POWERFUL

Filed under: Art contemporain, Photographie | Tags: , |

Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme
Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme create haunting worlds in their installations that blend fiction and reality. And yet my mask is powerful is an ongoing project that narrates a counter-model to the omnipresent images of crisis in our contemporary world.

This year Galerie Greta Meert celebrates its 30th anniversary. And for exactly 30 years it has collaborated with Thomas Struth. Three series are presented: a selection from historical series of black-and-white street and townscapes, still lives of deceased animals at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) in Berlin and monumental condensed images of Johnson Space Center in Houston and the Siemens Schaltwerk in Berlin.

Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels. 01.02.2018 > 31.03.2018.


SONG

As an exhibition, Song carries a particular tempo, closer to the time of reading than the time of looking. Alejandro Cesarco creates rhythm in his work by incorporating silences and withholdings: here the moving image works are presented sequentially, gently introducing a pace and flow to the installation and immersing the viewer in an aesthetic that the artist has elsewhere characterized as “muted melodrama.”

DAYS ARE DOGS

L’ensemble de l’exposition « Days are Dogs » opère par composition et recomposition d’archipels d’œuvres – celles de Camille Henrot, dont certaines inédites, mais aussi celles d’autres artistes internationaux, avec lesquels elle entretient un dialogue fécond: David Horvitz, Maria Loboda, Nancy Lupo, Samara Scott et Avery Singer. Le parcours se déroule en sept grandes parties thématiques. Chacune est consacrée à un jour de la semaine, allégorie d’un ensemble d’émotions et d’actions dont les œuvres se font l’écho. Camille Henrot invite également le poète Jacob Bromberg – avec lequel elle a collaboré sur plusieurs de ses œuvres – pour l’écriture des textes accompagnant l’exposition ainsi qu’une œuvre originale.

Les projets de Claire Williams gravitent autour du textile open source, floss software & hardware, des machines à tricoter hackées, du textile électronique et computationnel… et s’inscrivent dans le cadre d’une réflexion plus globale sur la question de la réappropriation des outils numériques. Ses obsessions : la captation de données et leur matérialisation, l’articulation entre langages numériques, sonores et textiles.

Galerie Rature, Liège. 19.10.2017 > 28.10.2017. (13e Festival Voix De Femmes)


DARK ROOM

altblog – Paul Mpagi Sepuya – Darkroom


For Paul Mpagi Sepuya, his medium is as much about disclosure as concealment, the role of the photographer ultimately one of control. Central to his practice is the undisguised and frequently experimental use of mirrors, which draws the viewer’s attention to the images’ photographic artifice, complicating the experience of looking at a subject, while also engendering a mystifying effect.

MICHEL MAZZONI: 3 EXHIBITIONS

Filed under: Art contemporain, Photographie | Tags: , , |

altblog-michel-mazzoni
Je m’intéresse aux formes données à la réalité à travers ses représentations, à la manière dont l’image leur donne corps et consistance. Dans mon rapport à l’image, je marque une certaine distance avec un medium prompt à revendiquer un pouvoir informatif. Le dit ou le non-dit, l’ellipse, représentent dans mes travaux le moyen de questionner la construction du sens et les formes de saisie du monde. Michel Mazzoni
